Hy-Vee and the Great American Milk Drive

Helping families in our community get access to much-needed milk!

This past June, Rochester Hy-Vee stores and Kemps partnered with The Great American Milk Drive to deliver much-needed, nutrient-rich milk to families served by Channel One Food Shelf.

Shoppers were invited to donate the monetary equivalent of a half or whole gallon of milk at checkout. Through the generosity of our customers, we were able to raise enough funds to distribute 6,965 FREE MILK vouchers to Channel One clients throughout the fall.

The unredeemed vouchers were converted into physical gallons this week. 

On December 21, KEMPS delivered 1,268 half gallons to fill the food shelf for Christmas week.  We are planning for over 4,000 more units to be delivered over the coming weeks and months. 

We sincerely appreciate the support of our program sponsors as well as our customers for their commitment to resolving the milk shortage in food banks.
